This super-rare strain, which also goes by the name Loompa’s Headband, is an indica-dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa). This cannabis plant’s buds appear a soft, light green with hues of purple calyxes here and there.
OG lovers will notice its chopped wood scent sprinkled with traces of black pepper. The smoke tastes sweeter than it smells, though its flavor still features that piney, woody quality. Emperor OG also nabbed 2nd place for Best Indica Concentrate at the High Times World Cannabis Cup in 2015.
It boasts a relatively average THC level of 15%, but its power comes from its terpenes, not necessarily its cannabinoids.
This strain hits hard, and it hits fast, despite its average THC content. The high noticeably starts in the body and largely remains there, tackling problems like chronic pain, muscle tension, cramps, or headaches directly. Feel-good vibes typically accompany the Emperor OG, too. For patients looking for a knock-out strain, look no further (if you can even find it).
Dry mouth, watery eyes, and severe sleepiness are common side effects with Emperor OG.
